Wild Oryx

Monday, January 4th, 2010

During a recent drive into the desert of Dubai we were lucky enough to see some wild Arabian Oryx.

EXIF
Canon 350D
Sigma 170-500mm at 500mm
1/2000 sec (lucky for lots of desert sun)
f5.6 wide open for this lens
ISO 200 to keep shutter speed high
No significant PP and no crops, hence 500mm.

And yes it is me in the last photo, they may have horns but not big teeth so get close.
It’s typical that when you get to see something like this you’ve lent your long lens out ! Easy I just stole it and the body it was attached to back.

Cheers,
